HADLEIGH CRICKET CLUB, SUFFOLK Sunday 1st XI (No team) v Mellis on Sun 13 May 2012 at 1.30 pm
HADLEIGH CRICKET CLUB, SUFFOLK Won By 7 wickets

Match report Sunny but cool at Hadleigh on Sunday and that was just the fashions. Grayling's dirty eleven took to the field against Mellis after a devastating warm up run by buster (level 2 ukcc coach) which involved both running and catching (occasionally at the same time). The opening attack took a couple of early wickets but subsequent scalps were much harder to come by on a slow and low wicket. Praise must be given to our dedicated ground staff who managed to prepare a wicket for this weekends play. Brett Crisp, with the lack of females to distract him, concentrated well behind the stumps. Good bowling performances by Manthorpe, Tampion, Gladwell, Handley, Ambrose and Rix restricted the visitors to 149 for 4 from their 40 overs.
Tea was taken - a feast of triangular sandwiches and cake even some Tortilla chips and dip were spotted (Anonymous player: absolutely stuffed).
Hadleigh padded up, buckled up and ventured into the arena. Full of early season nerves Rix and Crisp battled away without troubling the scores too much. In fact at one point the overs were more than runs scored. Crisp eventually fell to a thick toe edge onto the stumps. Ryan Phillips played on bringing Farmer to the middle. He didn't quite get into double figures before holing out at mid off. Out trotted Martin Grayling into the middle sporting a rather dashing head attire. He swung hard and occasionally the ball trickled off the square. Rix's 50 came in the 33rd over with the score on 124-3. Some flash shots from Tugga Rix and able athletic support from MG saw us home with 5 overs to spare. A great day, some decent weather and the cricket wasn't bad either!
